The CANSA has funding available for research projects initiated and executed at South African institutions such as universities, NGO’s and parastatal organisations.

They do not finance scientific research aimed at developing new anti-cancer medicines. However they will consider funding work on licensed anticancer medicines, particularly when the research addresses issues that are unique to a South African context.

The maximum annual amount granted for funding is currently R400 000 per applicant. CANSA will fund 75% of grants only. Applicants are requested to approach their relevant institutions for augmentation of the remaining 25% for a period of 3 years. CANSA thus funds R900 000 over 3 years and the institution of the grantee R300 000 over 3 years giving a total of R1.2 million over 3 years.

Focus Areas

  • Epidemiology and determinants of the burden of cancer in South African populations
  • Health seeking behaviours and early detection and diagnosis of cancer
  • Health promotion and risk reduction of cancer, with a particular focus on behavioural risk reduction
  • Optimal patient care addressing survivorship issues, quality of life, rehabilitation and palliative care services
  • Other health services and health system research relating to the above categories, including improved understanding of the major barriers to care as well as the impact of current referral pathways
  • Research relating to cancer biology/biochemistry/molecular biology/immunology with direct implications for early detection, risk reduction and patient care.

  • They are particularly interested in considering submissions from researchers who may not have traditionally worked on cancer, but who may bring important perspectives from other health disciplines to cancer-specific research questions.
  • They favour multidisciplinary projects; as part of this, they recommend inclusion of appropriate clinical perspectives in the project team, where applicable.
